Question By : nilofer kabir

A lady is going for umrah next week and has short hair,length is till just below her ears. She wants to know after umrah the one inch hair which she has to cut
from her head should it be just the below bottom part near the scalp or also the hair above it (i.e. all the hair coming down from all the roots). I have adviced her to keep long hair after umrah.

Dear in Islam
The answer of your question is as below:
There are some Wajibat in Umrah. One of them is Halq (to shave the hair) or Qasar (to cut the hair equal to a fingertip from one fourth of head). It is Haram (prohibited) for a woman to shave or cut her hair without any prescribed reason. Therefore, she will do Qasar (to cut hair equal to a fingertip from one fourth of her hair. It is better to cut one inch from hair coming down from all the roots but not necessary. (Aalam Geeri V: 1 P: 231)
Allah knows the best
